Dreaming of Baby's Tears

One of the plants I miss most from California is a groundcover called baby's tears.  The botanical name is fun to say - Soleirolia soleirolii.  It grows in Zones 10 and 11.

I know some people would think me crazy, as this plant can be highly invasive.  I can't help it though - I love walking through patches of baby's tears in my bare feet.  I adore the way it can fill in the cracks between stepping stones.  It's good for your spots that are always wet.

Then again, I also admire the way field bindweed looks in lawns.....

(Don't worry, I also properly loathe field bindweed overall as a plant. I'm not THAT foolish :) )

How do you feel about baby's tears?  Does a corner of your heart love it even though you know you shouldn't?

It is a lovely plant, though i know it is invasive in my zone 10. I agree somewhere in our hearts, we admire it creeping out of wall cracks and stones.
